Classic Herringbone trim has become a signature vintage touch for acoustic guitar soundboards. The handsome Herringbone purfling we supply is laminated with black fiber and natural unstained "white" wood, in straight strips.

Approximate dimensions:
.140" x 1/16" x 32" (3.56mm x 1.59mm x 812.80mm)

Two strips are needed for a Dreadnought or smaller soundboard.

TIP: Dimensions are approximate. For proper fit, wood purflings should be measured directly before routing the channels on your instrument.

See Articles for our detailed instructions on bending Herringbone purflings, routing a "stairstep" channel around the soundboard, gluing the purflings and their surrounding bindings in place, and scraping them flush.

Also available: time-saving bent Herringbone Dreadnought Purfling and Herringbone Soundhole Rosette.

GREAT STUFF!

Though a bit delicate to work with, these purfling strips have been a great help in reproducing the look of the "Art Deco" era!

Herringbone Purfling

Great quality, uniform size. First time using it and all went well installing it as a backstrap on a maple back. Also used the herringbone rosette which also was very nice. As usual, quality material!

Great Purfling and Rosettes

I use a lot of the prebent and straight Herringbone Purfling and the Herringbone Rosettes. It's always top quality.

Great product

Stew Mac's herringbone are a good product which hold together when lightly bending over a low heat with a touch of water. Check each end for best parallel lines for good match. (Pic is burst [with stewmac stains] 00 with Brazilian RW bridge).

herringbone purfling

I used (a small piece of) this to repair some damage on a very fine Santa Cruz TR. Match was perfect and it was easy to work with. Well made product.

Great Purfling

Picked this up for a recent guitar I built and it was great. Bent easy and I was really happy with how it looks.
